We have 2 livestock guardian dogs. They are supposed to be "independent thinkers" and should be given the minimal obedience training. Unfortunately, we followed this advice to the "T" with our Kuvasz (now 3) but were convinced with our Caucasian Ovcharka Shepard (just turning 1) that we should be more engaged and connected to them. We hired Dana after reviewing his credentials and reviews and referrals. After only 4 training sessions, we now have 2 dogs that will pay attention to us, come when called - every time, sit and stay. Dana doesn't use special equipment or tricks, he uses common sense and has trained US to communicate with our dogs. We are very pleased with Dana, our training experience, and our dogs' behavior. We have recommended and will continue to recommend Dana's training services to our friends and any one else who wants to learn how to communicate with their dog so the can co-exist happily. Thank you very much, Dana, for helping all of us.
Came out to the house to meet with my dog and work with him. He has behavior issues related to cars and fear. The trainer was very good with him. Amazingly calm and yet firm approach with a great grasp of his state of mind as well as his breed. Will be working with her on a continuing basis to help my dog overcome his fears.
Corey is very patient and knowledgeable. He actually formed a bond with our dog Zeus. Zeus loves seeing him come to the door. He is very hands on and Zeus is learning so much. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Donna was very knowledgable in the field of dog training plus used a kind, positive training approach with the dogs.
Maia has trained both my dogs and my horses. I compete with both and they have all titled nationally in their sports. Maia is a wonderful person, and a phenomenal trainer. I worked with her up to Grand Prix levels in dressage on my horse Dakota's Only Sun and have never had a better professional training experience. I'm a serious amateur and have been riding for 35 years, so I've seen lot of trainers! She also rode my younger dog through his conformation and obedience competitions for me, earning High in Show awards each time, including at a national show (for the best score in each level). I think the secret to her success with people and animals is that she somehow makes us all want to do our best for her, and she's right there to celebrate all the good stuff even when you don't see it. She's precise but positive. Even though I have now found another excellent trainer after Maia moved, I still write to Maia to troubleshoot strange dog behaviors, because she always comes up with good plans that improve performance without requiring threats, pain, new or harsher equipment etc.
I called for a phone free consult. I honestly was torn inside....was my dog not respecting me? so I had her come out to meet my br indle boxer who was a foolish dominating bully. my mother said hewhe was harder than my three kids to babysit. I was ready to send him off to bigger house or yard or farm as my mom said. we love dogs but he was a rude monster. she come the first time and he knew the minute he saw her it was no longer his world. I walked him with tears rolling down my cheeks because I felt hope he could stay. it all went uphill from there. now people yell at their dogs around mine and apologize fir their dogs behavior.something I never saw happening. my 2 yr old walks him with squirrel s in sight and no problem.....amazing. ami doesn't bring rules she brings hope. I will never be able to thank her enough for her passion. thanks don Cheryl Julia Cali Taylor mini and Hurley
Heather has a true gift with animals. My pup adores her and I don't worry about leaving him anymore. I definitely recommend her.
Jacque is everything I could ask for in a great dog trainer. He is very patient with both myself and my unruly pup, and we have made great progress already with only 2 training sessions under our belts. He is always available for questions and is very professional. I highly recommend him to anyone that is at their breaking point with their dog's bad behavior. This man knows what he's doing.
Heather has taken care of both our cat and dog on several occasions while we were away from home. She always does an outstanding job. She has an excellent way with animals, spending time with them and making sure all of their needs are met. I highly recommend Heather for any pet care needs you may have.
She has never done this before but she is willing to try something new. She loves animals and loves to spend time with them. She just needs someone to give her a chance.
I have a veterinarian technician diploma. I love caring for animals. I have also done internship at Humane Society and other facilities. I walk dogs, groom and also pet sit. I'm also able to read Perry's very well and I can tell if something is bothering them or wrong with them.
I treat all pets as if they were mine and mine get the best care with lots of LUV.
Our family-owned hospital has been caring for pets for over 30 years. Our goal is to provide the highest-quality pet care for our clients. We want to welcome you to our modern medical, surgery, boarding and grooming facility.
I clean to perfection and make things comfortable for the family, friends, and even the pets. The work I do is with quality.
I teach a dog how to listen and understand my command and to obey its owner. Dogs are like children, you must teach them right from wrong. A dog can be a man's best friend or a man's worst enemy.
